Intertwined II: A Contemporary Fibers Exhibit

June 13 – August 12, 2024
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 13, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Intertwined II: A Contemporary Fibers Exhibit is a dual exhibition coming this summer! Two of our galleries will feature the work of fiber artists Martina Celerin, Constance Collins, Anne McKenzie Nickolson, and Daren Redman. The third gallery will be open to artisans whose exhibit submissions ­­­reflect a wide range of works related to the fiber medium. The goal of the exhibition is to include innovative work rooted in traditional fiber materials, structure, processes, and history, as well as art that explores unexpected relationships between fiber and other creative disciplines.



My inspiration is drawn from both nature and my imagination; some pieces are scenes taken from memories of family walks or places I have visited. Others are much more abstract, capturing an idea, a personality or simply reflect the feelings evoked by an event or geographical area. All of the pieces, though, are true weavings, integrating the materials, landscapes or emotions I’ve drawn from my travels and experiences.

Bio & Statement


My artwork is created by upcycling fabric swatches from my wearable warps. I use fabrics as other artists use paints or inks, combining different patterns and colors into a kaleidoscopic piece. Several of my collages are inspired by mu concern for our planet’s health, something that the fashion industry has been guilty of damaging for quite awhile. Others reflect elements of nature or everyday life images.

Bio & Statement


All of my artwork from the past 35 years explores the relationship between the textile surface and pictorial illusion. Over the years, I have made several distinct bodies of work which all have certain concepts in common: an innovative use of techniques to create imagery, a commitment to craftsmanship and the beautiful object, and a search for a magical viewing experience – for both myself and the viewer.

Bio & Statement


I retell your story, my story, or the earth’s story in a contemporary textile art form. Whether you desire to experience one of these stories as art on your wall, or as a quilt to wrap yourself up in, I custom dye the material to embody these reflections. Or, if you have a photograph capturing the moment you want retold, I love using it as inspiration for designing the motif or the abstract composition.
